Most of the hardware is the Ford or Chevy discussion. After you get past that you want to look at the LCD DISPLAY and see which you can stand. Here I have to use an extra monitor for my CAD work. Picture of the older setup at:
This is why I'm back to the 15.4 inch laptop. It has the i7m, 1GB video card and its aluminum case keeps it cool than most units. It's an older Samsung rc512.
It was well under 1K and I'd do that again. There must be some hundred possible units out there today.
I am looking for a new laptop that I can run Autodesk Revit Architecture on it. I figure it probably has to be an i7 quad core
with at least 8g of ram, a 1g graphic card and above 500g hard-drive to be
efficient. Back-lid keyboard and Bluetooth would be nice too. My
budget is around a thousand.
Which brand is in general better? I have an old
Toshiba that is almost 10 yrs old. I have a lot of confidence in Toshiba
but their design is kind of not attractive. I have looked into Samsung
7series. They have a nice simple design but not sure how good they
are. How are HP and Dell? I like the design of Mac but I don't
think they are worth the price.
